On this pre-dawn training hike for Mt. Rainier we took a steep and fast ascent up The Chimneys in the Smoky Mountains. It's always a good haul wearing my 3lb (each) Scarpa mountaineering boots. The rumors you've heard about the boots are true. Yes, it's true. They are pink. That's been confirmed. (photo below to prove it).
